Tapas are just the start here, since this cozy Spanish restaurant covers regional cuisine well, too. The pimiento del piquillo, stuffed with truffle-marinated mozzarella, is delicious and could stand up well to what you'd find in Navarre. The solomillo de buéy (sirloin steak) with dried fruit and brandy sauce is a very tasty and filling main. The super-friendly staff here can pair a wine perfectly with a dish—an increasingly rare skill. Take a little time
to explore the restaurant's vibrant surroundings: Sofiankatu and nearby streets are named for the wives of Russian czars, and there is a feel of Doctor Zhivago about it.
